I Just Can't Quit Loving You

I quit smoking I quit drinking
I quit staying out all night
I quit drinking from the milk carton
I quit starting barroom fights
But there's one habit that I don't want to lose
I just can't quit loving you

I quit paying my bills late
I quit driving cars too fast
I quit wasting my good money
On thrills that wouldn't last
But I can't stand the thought if you and I were through
I just can't quit loving you

Love is harder on me
Than anything else I find
Messes with my heart, messes with my mind
I guess I'll have to live with the love I have to do
I just can't quit loving you

When things got rough at work
And I kept at it for awhile
But when I'd finally had enough
I quit Johnny Paycheck style
But I'm still around after all that we've been through
I just can't quit loving you

Chorus

I can't take any steps
To leave behind your heart
Without falling down honey
Or falling apart
And walking away is something I could never do
I just can't quit loving you

Chorus
